Back to the Coast again

Heading south again we decided to have a brief stop at Four Mile Beach in Fitzgerald River National Park. The ocean was angry so swimming was not on the agenda, but a spell of beachcombing definitely was. Walking down to the beach we encountered a small but very beautiful green snake with a brown head and black collar. Anyone who knows what it is please let us know.

To our surprise on the beach we then found two dead weedy sea dragons amongst the weed, and then the following morning we found a leafy sea dragon, most likely washed up in the recent rough seas.

Packing up the next day we headed back East to Quagi beach, a campsite nestled in thick Banksia scrub, with a few Eucalypts. The bird life here was incredible and we stayed for several days. We found more bee hives along the rocky shore, and I managed to get stung on the head by a particularly angry bee. A few days were spent here doing homework and slowing the pace down.
